[Esd-l] Problem with unmangling attachments

Nothing like having an email client that follows the standards of
email. My first rule in email security: "Never use OEx no matter how many
ways they try to say it's secure." And I don't care how much my users
whine, they can learn to use something else.

Unless OE6 has some kind of setting for attachments, I'd recommend looking
up the manual way to unmangle attachments. I go right into the hold and
find the offending email, then:
- remove this line:
"X-Content-Security: [computer] original Content-Type was
and unmangle the name in all places.
then reapply the message with 'cat':
cat file >> /var/spool/mail/myuser
make sure you use two ">" so you don't blow away any mail that is unopened
for the user.
BTW, what's a "x-msdownload" content type?
